Just left the great city of Ft Shaw yesterday with my newest toy from Kirby. Joel did a great job on the finish and Kirby's work is spectacular, I know it will shoot! I need to take lessons from Len on taking pictures, they aren't the best and don't do justice to the rifle or Joel and Kirby's work.

338 Allen Mag
Joel Russo Stock
Jewell Trigger at 1 1/4 lbs
32 in. Lilja barrel
Lawton Action
Leupold 8x25 Mark 4

Need a few more reloading parts now and I'll get started with loading and then barrel break-in. I'll be shooting 300 gr SMK's until Richards 265 gr are ready. I can't wait! I don't see the image icon for pictures, sorry???????

    It weighs about 18 1/2 lbs. It is a Kirby 5 port brake. The Lawton action is the 8000.
    Thanks for the replies, I can't wait for that elk or monster muley at 1500 yds to walk out

    Nice rifle..... I was scrolling through your picture album... the bore sighter shot looks very very very scary!!! I would of never expected a barrel to split perfectly like that. Hope no one was hurt!
